Lord of Life,
we greet this new day
sustained by the great cloud of witnesses
who praise your name.
Help us to lay aside any burden or distraction
that might prevent us from fully serving you this day.
Give us perseverance and joy
so that we may come to the end of the day
confident in your presence
and aware of your blessings. Amen.
Household Prayer: Evening
God of Hope,
confirm for us at the close of this day
the fulfillment of your promise of provision.
Release our concerns for things done and left undone.
Give us your peace
so that we rise refreshed
to serve you with openness and love. Amen.
